What our customers say


Realising expansion plans

I wasn’t really planning on getting finance, but everything just seemed to fall into place this year.

I’m mainly a crop farmer, but also finish quite a few lambs over winter and have gradually been doing more and more. Last year went well – we did about 3,500 – and I was looking to increase the number this year. With store lambs costing approximately about $30 more a head this season, I started exploring different ways to finance the additional cost and Heartland Bank’s Open for Livestock product seemed to be the ideal solution.

I completed the application online in the evening, got a call first thing in the morning and had a bit of a chat about what I was looking for. A day later, a Heartland Bank rural manager came out to see me and get all the paperwork signed, and we were set to go.

It was such a simple and pleasant process, and it’s great to be able to expand the operation as planned.
